Undersea Umbrella
Tom Trefethen is a
multiple grammy nominated
recording engineer/producer
He is best known for his Ambrosia albums, including the hit single "How
Much I Feel", "Magical Mystery Tour" from the movie soundtrack album All
This and WWII
, gospel great Andrae Crouch and the Disciples albums plus
solo efforts for Dannibelle Hall and Billi Thedford. This led to his playing an
important role in the birth of a new genre called Christian rock.
His recordings for Chuck Girard, Randy Stonehill, Larry Norman, and Keith Green done in the mid 70's are now considered classics, having laid the groundwork for today's flourishing Christian market. Other album credits include artists Tony Joe White (Polk Salad Annie ), Michael Nesmith and the one and only Andy Williams . He contributed to projects for Joe Cocker, Styx, Melissa Manchester, Debbie Boone, Staple Singer Members, and cartoon voice master Hal Smith. Tom got to record the absolute cream of the crop studio musicians - Jim Keltner, Jimmy Gordon, Klaus Voormann, Wilton Felder, Leon Russell, Joe Sample, Dean Parks, Lee Ritenour, and Larry Carlton to name a few. And also had the unique experience of co-recording albums with such engineer/producer legends as Andy Johns, Larry Brown, and Alan Parsons . Tom, a musician and songwriter at heart, closed that phase of his career by recording his own Trefethen album, featuring many of the artists and players he had worked with over the years. His independent project would see multi-country distribution (almost unheard of in the late 70's) receiving critical acclaim. Many in the industry today consider Trefethen the birth of the Alternative Music movement.
